I was in an unhappy and stressful relationship for 3 years. When I finally had the courage to leave the relationship, I started to look for an apartment. I was fortunate to find a big, beautiful apartment that was only 3 blocks away from my parent’s house. The apartment was perfect for me but I was still missing something.
When I was living with my ex-boyfriend, we raised a 5 years old pit-bull named Jayden together. When my ex was at work, Jayden would follow me around the house and was always by my side. She would bark when strangers were at the front door, and she would guard me. She was my ears and eyes while I was asleep. She was my protector and my companion when I was alone in the house. I felt very comforted and safe when she was around. Jayden is currently with my ex now and I miss her so much. I helped raised that dog for 3 years and it hurts to know that I will rarely see her again.
Even though I love this new apartment, I still felt scared, lonely, and heartbroken. I knew I had to get a dog. I searched online and came across this adorable 3 years old puggle named Marco. I fell in love instantly.
When Marco came home to me, it felt new. However, I have grown to love him more each day, and he quickly made himself at home. He became my protector and my companion. He follows me everywhere around the house (even the bathroom. Haha.) and he is always by my side. He is my little guard dog. He loves to get belly rubs, and he loves to cuddle. I call him my prince charming. I am not scared or lonely anymore. I now have something to look forward to when I come home.
